on sunday, andy and i stole away to menchies....of course. from there we drove around west magnolia....i.e. my dream neighborhood. you simply feel out of the city, without being in suburbia in west magnolia. i love it. of course, i need upwards of $700k to be able to live there, but a girl can dream, eh? we took the dogs and walked along the water view, found some steep stairs and took them to wherever they'd lead. from there we found a crack in a gate and finally our toes met the water. finn drank a bit before realizing it was the sea.
it was so peaceful. a little secret place for just us. i felt like, "oh yes, this is what it feels like to NOT be bogged down with to dos! i remember this!" and i loved every minute of it.
